Re: Wife joining husband in aikido class?

I don't see why there would be a problem with couples in Aikido class, unless they were trash talkers like your ex-girlfriend!
I met my husband in Aikido. However, he has practiced off and on since then, only recently coming back to class. We have a one-year-old daughter, Ava, so we take turns watching her during training. Its great having this family time.
I have always found that in Aikido, you tend to leave your problelms at the door. I think Aikido is a good way for couples to spend more time together. Especially if your spouse is someone who likes to isolate themselves and play online games for hours and hours!
